Can You Help Our Book Appeal?

Children reading

Do you have piles of children’s books languishing on your bookshelves at home?  If so, would you consider donating them to the school to help us with our Key Stage 3 Accelerated Reader Programme?

Elysia Roach, Teacher of English, said:  “The Accelerated Reader programme is all about promoting a love of reading and parents could really help us to build up our book stocks by donating children’s books that are just taking up space at home.”

The books on the list below would be particularly helpful, as they are very popular and we require multiple copies of them.  There will be a book collection box at the school reception. Thank you for your help.
